- Wedding: May 2010
Hello, Bees! Please allow me to vent for a second!
Back in December, I asked my FI several times during the month to give me his invite list. Of course, he didn’t and I had to go to his family/church to get a list! Well, the invites went out 2 weeks ago, and everyday since I mailed the invites, he has 3 to 4 additional people to add to the invite list!
My RSVP deadline is this coming Friday, April 16 and the wedding is May 15. Since the majority of our guests live in the same place we are getting married, Panama City, Florida, I figured that they would definitely RSVP immediately! Unfortunately, I was wrong- oh, so wrong!
Yesterday, prior to opening the mail, I had 50 RSVPs. After opening the mail, I had 63. However, this morning, with my FI’s co-workers, I’m now up to 105 and still counting! This is beginning to be unbelieveable!
We had our food tasting last weekend and decided to go with two different styles of chicken breast as the main meat for 150 people! In addition to the chicken, we are doing a wild rice pilaf, southern-style green beans, a salad and a dinner roll!
Apparently, when this is all over, we are going to have 200 plus guests……
Does anyone have suggestions on how I can cut down on the number of guests (which is very unlikely) OR what additional inexpensive foods I can feed 200 plus guests?
